Peeler Consolation: West Stokes 10, Salisbury 0

From staff reports
As local baseball fans learned from Friday and Saturday, when it rains, it pours. The same was true for Salisbury after letting a comfy lead slip away against McMichael.
The Hornets followed their opening round game with a 10-0 loss in five innings to West Stokes in the consolation round of the Cliff Peeler Baseball Classic.
West righthander Amos Wilmoth threw a complete game for the Wildcats, striking out six and allowing just four hits. West (13-4) scored five times in the second inning and got home runs from Jordan Hall and Tyler Bullard to pull away early.
ěWe didnít chase any bad pitches,î West coach Kirk Goodson said. ěWe swung at strikes and were able to connect on a few.î
Philip Tonseth had two hits for Salisbury and Brian Bauk had a double in the fifth.
ěI donít think we bounced back well,î Salisbury coach Scott Maddox said. ěIt is a little disheartening to lose like that, but youíve got to step up and play.î
Dalton Boles hit a solo homer in the first for West.

Lake Norman won the opening game at Salisbury in a 2-1 triumph against West. Jonathan Stires pitched 62/3 innings for the Wildcats, who scored twice in the bottom of the first and led the rest of the way.
Jessie Seaford scored on a wild pitch to tie the game and Alex Cagide had an RBI single for the 2-1 final.
Stires struck out eight and allowed just three hits after giving up a home run to start the game.
